I am always concerned about knowing what God wants me to do and doing it. I have spent a great deal of my life afraid of missing God’s will or settling for less than His best plan for my life.
Part of that comes from having fallen in love with a young man in college that I truly thought was God’s match for me, only to have him prove untrue after we were married. I wanted so much to do God’s perfect will even way back then.
A friend made a comment today during after school tutoring. “God can get us to the place where He wants us to be, even if we fight Him every step of the way.”
I asked her to repeat it for me a couple of times. If God can take people where He wants them to be, even though they are fighting against Him, then surely He will take us to the place He wants us to be if we are asking Him to do so and desire it with all of our hearts.
We put way too much emphasis on ourselves and our efforts. We live in fear of failing the One who never fails us. Surely this is not the relationship God wants to have with us.
Where He leads, I will follow. His Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
